The best way to prep for the SAT in West Hartford is to come up with an SAT study plan. This means that you'll need to know your test date, how much time you have to prep, and what kind of prep materials you should use to get a great score. We've assembled a list of the top colleges in the West Hartford area and the best options for SAT prep in West Hartford.

First, though, you'll want to register for an appropriate SAT test date. The SAT is offered seven times each year, on one Saturday in January, March, May, June, October, November, and December. It's wise to register early to avoid late-registration fees.


SAT test-takers often spend at least five weeks studying, while other future college students take the exam with no preparation! Take the time to study before test day and reap the benefits of practicing ahead of time. While SAT prep books are still the most common study method, many competitive test-takers take live prep courses and use a variety of apps to supplement their studies.
